This week's reading


No Name is proving to be a very interesting story but it's really long! I'm sure that if I sat down and read straight through, I could finish it shortly. But it's my nighttime reading, right before I go to bed. I think I just passed page 300. Maybe another week?


I had no idea what to expect when I borrowed I Became a Christian and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt. I pulled it off the shelf because it sounded interesting but it took me several weeks and a renewal to start reading it. Now I'm wishing I had started earlier because I can see the value in rereading it at a slower pace. The book has made me laugh and has made me cry. I've already learned one valuable lesson that I want to share later.


A Heart for Freedom has been a bit of a choppy read but I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops. I have not progressed very far because I've been concentrating on I Became a Christian... but I will definitely focus on this book once the other is finished.

I have no idea what fiction book to tackle next! I kind of want a more modern novel but I'm not impressed with most of them. Classics take me so long to read, though, and they aren't always the best bedtime reading. Any suggestions?

Have you tried The Submission by Amy Waldman. I found that really thought provoking but a great read. Or Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death by J Runcie. I'm sure your library would have both of these.

I always enjoy hearing your take on books. I am such a slow reader and my list is pretty long but I really can only concentrate on one book at a time.
